AAST 126 - Archives ReImagined

FC SSCI CD
4 credits
The course introduces students to archives and field research from a global perspective. The class will expose students to: primary sources including letters and proclamations written in cursive; reports of trauma recorded in microfiche; and radio and telegram communique. The course takes an interdisciplinary approach that stretches the boundary of traditional archives (also known as repositories) by having learners explore murals, art, song, poetry, dance, and oral stories. Students should expect guest lectures about digital archiving, guest artists, multilingual materials, and reading about how scholars record silence and absence in archives. The class includes lectures and discussions. Optional field trips include an excursion to your nearby museum, library, and research on murals in your area.
Does this course require off campus field trips? Yes
